LIVETARGET Hollow Body Mullet Review [Pros, Cons & Video Review]


One of the newer lures on the market I’ve been using lately is the LIVETARGET Hollow Body Mullet.

This is a weedless topwater lure that is great for inshore fishing. I like to use it to chase trout and snook.

It’s a hard body lure that can be used similarly to an unweighted soft plastic lure.

It’s also realistic looking — like all LIVETARGET lures — and has a great profile in the water.

This lure also has some issues. There are a couple aspects I’m not too crazy about.

In this article, I go over the specs and options for the LIVETARGET Hollow Body Mullet. You can also watch my full review of this lure in the video at the bottom of the article.

If you have any questions about this lure, let us know in the comments at the bottom of the page.

Ah yes I knew you would be getting around to testing the live target mullet I have been using these since the beginning of the year I purchased all the sizes in the silver and the natural mullet colors I use the silver when the mullet are not yet running but the water temps are right for topwater then I switch to the natural mullet when they start running the plain silver mimics a pilchard quite well but yes they do have a tendency for filling up with water after I would say about 10 to 15 casts I usually just squeeze the water out then and apply some procure mullet scent and keep on casting but on the upside to this when they do start to sink and when the sun has risen a little bit higher then I switch to subsurface baits and the hollow body mullet seems to work great for this in fact you can control the depth of the lure by how much water you leave in it i have done very well with this lure on big reds and trout but like all topwater baits you have to feel the fish before you set the hook by the way I ordered mine at tackle warehouse .com and found them to be a little cheaper about 12 bucks versus 15 at dicks just saying anyways as always thanks for the report and all you do????

I fish the shore in Naples Florida regularly. I would love to just cast a 6″ mullet till I land large fish with this lure. The problem I am having though is small jack and spanish mackeral (I’m guessing) attack the lure and bite the tail clean off making the lure useless. Yesterday evening I got 3 casts out of my $10 lure before the tail was bit off. The lure did get action where others didn’t, I’ll give it that. I might try a solid or larger swim bait.

Hey Tony, good stuff to know. Thanks. One quick question.. since the ring that attaches the hook is exposed, couldn’t you attach an open eye O’shaughnessy hook to the lure if the stock hook becomes rusted or too dull to resharpen?
Thanks, Mike
Ps ALL hollow body lures will take on water over time. Just part of the gig.

did not see the tail move at all – does it move when you are walking the dog on the surface? Can you point out any videos where it was used?
Thanks on the video

No the tail does not move like all topwater baits its just a piece of plastic but if you walk it right believe me hang on because it’s about to get eaten good luck????
